Maybe, when your first child came along, you thought, I am going to teach my child to appreciate healthy food, not the garbage I grew up eating.

And maybe, just maybe, after countless trips to fancy grocery stores and farmer markets, hours spent trying out recipes, and endless dinner table showdowns with your tiny, finicky roommate, you revised your strategy. You thought, Screw it. Just give him the frozen chicken nuggets and white rice, if that’s what he wants so much.

You may be happy to know there’s a solution to healthy family eating that falls between these two extremes.

Blue Apron’s family plan makes cooking at home fun again. Once a week, fresh ingredients are delivered to your door for meals you and your family can prepare together, eat together, and enjoy together. Read on to see how Blue Apron can get your kids interested in eating healthy, and if you sign up now you can get two meals free with your first order.

Your kids learn to eat healthier

The family plan menu includes all sorts of family-friendly recipes such as turkey burgers, chili, or fish tacos… all made with fresh, seasonal ingredients. New recipes every week give your family a lot of variety and exposure to different flavors and ingredients.

Less shopping equals more stress-free time together

Because Blue Apron sources seasonal food directly from family-run farms, you don’t have to waste your time searching for hard-to-find ingredients in half a dozen stores. Take that extra half hour and play a board game with your kids.

The best part is that you’re not even paying extra for the convenience of having it delivered — Blue Apron generally costs less than 60% of the cost of buying the ingredients yourself.

The family that cooks together… something that rhymes with “cooks together”

Blue Apron recipes are designed for beginners and experienced cooks alike. With pre-portioned ingredients and easy-to-follow recipes — including pictures and instructional videos — they’re made for families to prepare together. Not only will you be teaching your kids the basics of cooking, but they’re more likely to be interested in foods they helped make themselves.

 

See if Blue Apron is right for your family and get two meals free if you sign up now.
